Understanding task manager memory readings
Posted on 2008-10-18
in a system with 2gb of RAM (or more. it does not really mater).
In Performance tab:
total memory = total RAM
in available memory, memory = RAM + VM
In Processes tab:
mem usage (Working Set) = RAM used by process (i think).
1. If I sum the processes mem usage, sometimes I get a number higher then the total RAM in the system. Why ?
2. If working set is not representing only RAM, Is there a way to calculate ONLY the RAM consumed by a process without the VM ?
3. Please explain if my understanding is incorrect.
